Solid trail, paved all the way through. Super windy! Also practically no shade but it’s not that long. Usually can see people flying kites, waking/running. Isn’t really a hike more like a leisurely stroll. Great views of San Fransico, Golden Gate Bridge, bay bridge, Marin county, Berkeley, etc. lots of benches.

I loved the views on this trail. I've only lived in California for a year, but I'm constantly blown away by the Bay. I definitely got my ocean-side walk fix! Lots of people and dogs, so wouldn't recommend I'd you're not into that. Was kind of over quickly, but will definitely do again.

Nothing really exciting, great views. Easy loop trail.

Nice little park. I'ts an off-leash dog park right in the center. Good to know.

Great for a short walk along the bay. There were lots of families out enjoying the views of SF and the surrounding areas.

It was ok. I parked beside a car with a busted out window, so from the start the area seemed a little sketchy. I rode my bike around the lake. There were a lot ppl walking and there were some kayakers on the lake. The side closest to the highway had a lot of exhaust fumes from the traffic. There are nicer places to go - like the marina on the other side of the highway.

Fab for flat run, extend it by going around the 'goat paddock' makes a great figure 8 run and that way can do it multiple times without getting too bored

Nice open park with options to go around the perimeter or through the trails. Some areas are "leash free" for dog owners. I had to take the run down to the end of the Berkeley Pier. Interesting fact: the whole marina area is built on a landfill! Have fun and enjoy the sites

I love this trail. I walk it often. Too many bikes at times
